    late for work or at work

    For example: if something comes up for me like a family emergency, my friends won't be upset if I tell them I'll be late at work. Is my sentence proper English?

    Thank you for your response.

    Re: late for work or at work

    'Late at work' is possible, but unusual; 'late for work is the normal BrE expression.
